Now as the headline might suggest, I am not saying you will only like this LG television if you are a student, because for it's size it is an excellent piece of equipment with full 1080p HD, which I think anyone looking for a small to medium size TV this would be as worth competition as any other.
I am now in my second year of uni and wanted a TV that I could easily plug into my laptop and use as extra workspace for uni work as well as watching the odd movie. Another benefit of the set is the built-in Freeview tuner.
So to start of, the looks. It is very smart looking, with cool touch screen, although sometimes I get a bit impatient with the power button, but this is purely because there is no response for a little while. One thing I would say about the casing though is the shiny plastic does look a bit tacky, but then what do you expect for a HD TV under £200?!
When it does turn on however it is worth the wait. going through the menus, there is plenty of oppurtunities to adjust, or even choose from pre-set screen configurations, ranging from user (whilst working on your laptop) to cinema display.
To get the best out of the display you can connect the TV to your laptop/Games console/BluRay player etc. There is plenty of connections at the back of the television (see spec for full details). I tend to use the audio out socket quite a bit as I hook it into my iPod dock so I can play the sound through that, as the speakers can be a bit quite if your not sitting quite close to the TV.
When watching BluRay's you can really see the 1080P HD come into its own, you can see all the action, the darks are really dark, and it is generally very nice to watch.
The built in Freeview is very simple to use, although the guide can be a bit slow sometimes, if this is something that is really important to you, it might be worthwhile buying a separate Freeview box.
All of this for a penny under £200, it is definitely one of my better investments whilst I have been at uni.
If you are a student I can definitely recommend this TV from personal experience, the quality is very good and definitely useful when you have multiple applications on your computer. If you are not a student, this is still an excellent choice of TV, with built in Freeview under £200 with HD and a recognised brand you cannot go wrong
We needed another TV for the lounge, when my friend and I moved into the same flat and didn't want to give up our lovely computer monitors, and seeing I already owned a TV/Monitor incredibly similar to it, I thought we'd go halves on this one, and it's been a great TV so far.
It came at a great price, just under 200 pounds at Curry's and, although not the biggest TV or anything, and it does look a bit silly by itself in our lounge, it does a fantastic job. Within minutes of getting it out of the box we had it all set up and working - the built in freeview means that you don't need any extra things to get watching all those great free channels.
It has, at the back, two HDMI cables for HD gaming or Blu rays, a VGA to work as a monitor, two Scarts and components so you can, pretty much, plug in just about anything you want.
The overall look the thing is really sleek, in LG's typical glossy black finish which makes everything look a million times more expensive than it actually is.
It's light enough to move around with ease if ever you need to shift its location - which we do quite a bit of the time if ever the other one needs another monitor for gods-know-what, so it's been moved around a lot and so far still looks and plays as great as it did when it came out of the box.
All in all, this is a great TV, at a great price. Full HD with built in freeview, and without any hassles to put up, it makes a nice additional TV, or, if you're poor students like us, a great main one.
I recently purchased this tv after my main tv started playing up. The LG M2262D is my first experience of a flat-screen tv so I was excited to get it unpacked and rigged up.
The best thing about this television for is its versatility..you can set it up to your computer (it has an RGB input), it is HDMI compatible and had high definition although I havent tried using it for that yet.
The remote control for this TV enables you to change the input to the device: AVI1,AVI2,RGB,ANTENNAE,HDMI, the great thing about this is that you can connect a number of device to it and just shuffle through the input menu when you need that particular device. For example, i have connected a laptop, dvd player, video recorder: all these can be connected to this TV.
The LG M2262D has a range of outputs for audio too, you can also purchase a surround sound system to rig up to it or just use the auio output phone jacks as i do to connect to an amplifier.
I bought this tv for my partner for christmas for her bedroom. Its a fantastic tv for the price and is just the right size for a bedroom or maybe a kitchen. It looks stylish but the main thing that surprised me was the quality on the inbuilt tuner. Most tvs I have seen on freeview have not looked very good but this is an exception.
I also connected the tv to my partners computer and as a monitor is works very well with internet surfing and also gaming. I plan to bring my PS3 over soon to try Blu-Rays on it and my home tv is only 720p, althought I'm not sure about the benefit of 1080p on a tv this size,but is beneficial as a monitor.
The only disadvantage this tv has is the sound, it lacks any type of bass and I had to buy some pc speakers to connect upto the headphone socket to improve things. This isn't a major issue as it is something all tv's this size suffer from.
This is really a good TV and you can't go wrong with this if you want to buy it for a loved one or just if you want it in your living room to play the PS3 or Xbox 360.
Very good picture if watching in HD and in normal TV actually, sometimes the picture quality isn't good with close up images like explosions and other things.
This is also a full HD TV so you can watch in 1080p. This is probably the best quality for HD and if you get blu ray DVDs that are 1080p and have a PS3 or a blu ray player then all you will need is surround sound and some popcorn because the sound and images will be absolutely amazing. Even if you are playing games as well, the intensity and detail of it is amazing and is all thanks to the wonderful makers of the LCD TV.
Another beautiful looking product from LG. It's on the small side at 22", but the quality, both numbers and real world performance is great. 22" of full HD (1080p) with built in DVB-T tuner and plenty of connections, buying this will allow you to have a monitor or a television - or both! You can switch between the tv or the monitor easily. Whatever you use it for - it will still be great.
There are two HDMI ports, two SCART ports, one DVI port and a VGA port for those older computers. One of the other great features is the ability to use a flash drive or other external hard drive to input your multimedia directly. That's all great, but where would you be without the speakers? Normally speakers on monitors aren't fantastic, but this is also a television. Unfortunately, it does matter that it has Trusound or that it's in stereo, it's still only 'ok'. The fact remains that if you want decent sound - get some proper dedicated speakers!
More complicated info:
This screen has a ludicrous contrast ration of 50000:1 which is just awesome. Contrast is the difference between the whites and the blacks. The greater the difference, the better the picture looks, usually. Very low power consumption, 50w whilst in use, according to the specification, with it using just 1w in standby.
Installation was easy, it found all of my channels, and none needed tuning in 'more accurately'. It's nice to use the menus dont lag.
This is a hard screen to sum up. It's good picture quality, the sounds ok (not above), the connectivity and internal tv tuner make a great set of features. At the £220 mark (Dixons), I'd say it was a good buy - if you want the all of the connectivity, and the freeview tuner. If you don't want those, there are some stunning monitors, full HD in 24" for about the same price. Please also bear in mind that it might be full HD, but it's a 22" screen, and you are probably going to be a fair distance away... catch my drift?
Don't forget that it looks stunning!
